Bhateshwar Temple Complex + Shani Mandir

Bhateshwar: Truly Mystical! This is an archaeological site comprising about 200+ ancient shrines in Morena district, Madhya Pradesh. The shrines in Bateshwar complex are dedicated mostly to Shiva and a few to Vishnu. The temples are made of sandstone and were built around 300 years before Khajuraho temples were built!

Our video-blog about this trip can be found here.

Also, here‘s an informative documentary depicting how these temples were restored with help from locals and even the dacoits of chambal!

Shani temple: On our way back we visited this ancient Shani temple which has an interesting story of lord Hanuman associated with it 🙂 We also met the pet deer and it’s cute little cub 🙂
